Opening Day is just days away. Teams across the league are talking to their gamers about extensions and seeking to settle arbitration instances earlier than going to hearings. Most importantly, however, they’re setting the completing touches on their rosters – and on Monday, the St. Louis Cardinals have finalized theirs.

Pitchers: Adam Wainwright, Miles Mikolas, Steven Matz, Dakota Hudson.

Relievers: Jordan Hicks, Drew VerHagen, Jake Woodford, Giovanny Gallegos, Ryan Helsey, A. Pallante, Genesis Cabrera, TJ McFarland, Nick Wittgren, Kodi Whitley, Aaron Brooks.

Catchers: Yadier Molina, Andrew Knizner.

Infielders: Paul Goldschmidt, Nolan Arenado, Tommy Edman, Paul DeJong, Albert Pujols, Edmundo Sosa.

Outfielders: Tyler O’Neill, Harrison Bader, Dylan Carlson, Corey Dickerson, Lars Nootbaar.

On the injured list, in the meantime, are Jack Flaherty and Alex Reyes, who’re of the Cardinals’ maximum talented pitchers. Losing them is a blow, but the crew is confident in its inner depth, and there remains a chance that a reliever (Jake Woodford? Jordan Hicks?) sees time inside the rotation with Flaherty out.

But this roster comes as expected and with no surprises. There changed into some doubt about Lars Nootbaar’s reputation in current days, however it became clear he might make it, because the company has been adamant about him getting enormous at-bats within the majors. That will become tough with Pujols and Corey Dickerson in town, of path, however he could have the luxury of mastering from each before having a totally strong risk of taking keep of the whole-time DH spot in 2023.

The Cardinals are confident that this is the roster which could get them deep into the postseason. There are out of doors skeptics, myself included, specifically after not adding a excessive-leverage bullpen arm. But the organisation, specially president of baseball operations John Mozeliak, has earned the gain of the doubt.

Their first check is only days away. It’s time to get excited.
